  Description     : Ruby bindings for LBL Packet Capture library (libpcap)

libpcap (Packet CAPture) provides a portable framework for low-level
network monitoring.  Applications include network statistics collection,
security monitoring, network debugging, etc.

pcaprub provide a consistent interface for using libcap in Ruby.

It does not provide packet processing functionality, only the interface
for capturing packets, and passing yielding those packets.

The old binding (in ruby-pcap) is currently unmaintained and should be
removed from the archive once ruby-pcaprub gets in. The former has
currently no reverse dependencies.
